Tuusanuuskat: Toiminnan aattona


Tuusanuuskat: Toiminnan aattona was released in 2017 on digital format by Fonal Records and on now sold out cassette by Ultraääni Records. Fonal Records and Ultraääni join forces with Jan Anderzén’s label Vauva to release the album on vinyl on November 30th 2018. It is now available for pre-orders in the Fonal shop.

Toiminnan aattona translates as “On the Eve of Action”. The basic tracks for the album were recorded in 2012 by Sami Sänpäkkilä (Es, Fonal Records) and Jan Anderzén (Tomutonttu, Kemialliset Ystävät). The legendary Goodiepal whistled on two tracks during his visit in Finland. The album was put on hold for many years due to other projects, including a documentary Sänpäkkilä made about Goodiepal called The Goodiepal Equation.

In 2017 both Sänpäkkilä and Anderzén revisited the recordings and decided that the album must be released. Additional violins and vocals by Sanna Komi (Ko:mi, Kynnet, Pintandwefall) and saxophone by Suvi Linnovaara (Ainon, Tikka & Linnavaara) were recorded to add organic melodies to the swooshing synths and low bit rhythm samples created by Sami and Jan. The end result is a timeless album full of weird and beautiful sounds.

The amazing cover is an artwork in itself created by Jan Anderzén with logo design and lettering by Ultraääni boss Arsi Keva. Band photo is taken by fine artist Ilona Lehtonen and layout is done by Sami Sänpäkkilä.
